A FA should not be conducted if:
The individual conducting the FA does not have experience or resources to conduct a FA.
The term used to refer to the interventions that individuals may resort to using that are increasingly intrusive, coercive, and punishment-based.
Analog conditions are used in a functional analysis because:
They allow the practitioner to better control the environmental variables that may be related to the problem behavior.
Completing a functional analysis makes it easier for one to develop:
Conducting a functional assessment will provide information concerning:
All the above:Dimensions of the behaviorAntecedent events
Consequences of the behavior
Data are collected for several days and then analyzed for patterns across time periods when this procedure is used:
FBA methods can be classified into:
Three types: 1) functional analysis, 2) descriptive assessment, and 3) indirect assessment.
Functional analyses should only be conducted when one wants to evaluate the function of severe self-injurious behavior.
If one is trying to test if escape is maintaining a behavior, then the inclusion of this condition in the FA is recommended:
Including the tangible condition in a FA is:
Should be carefully considered and only used when a tangible function is hypothesized.
Problem behavior can be maintained by:
All the above:a. Social positive reinforcement. b. Automatic reinforcement.
c. Tangible reinforcement.
The advantage of brief functional analyses is that they:
The conditions in a FA are usually randomly alternated in a(n):
Alternating treatment design
The identification of antecedent events that evoke a behavior and reinforcing consequences that maintain a behavior is referred to as:
The use of experimental methods in conducting a functional assessment involves the manipulation of:
Consequences and antecedents
There is only one way to conduct a functional analysis and a FA must include the following four conditions: alone, escape, attention, and control/play.
This recording procedure uses precise measures, and in some cases the correlations may reflect causal relations:
To determine if a behavior is maintained by escape from task demands, one must make sure to include the following condition in a functional analysis:
Undifferentiated results obtained in a functional analysis are considered:
Inconclusive and require further analysis, or can indicate that a behavior is maintained by automatic reinforcement.
Visual inspection of a functional analysis graph suggests that SIB occurred frequently during the attention condition, as the level for that condition is much higher than the other conditions and does not overlap with any of the other lines. This graph suggests that:
The behavior is maintained by attention.
Which is the best explanation of a descriptive functional behavior assessment?
Directly observing the problem behavior in relation to events under naturally occurring conditions.
Which of the following is a threat to the validity of brief functional analyses but is not as much of a concern with extended functional analyses?A. Incorporating the correct type of attention to be delivered during the attention conditionB. The use of a control conditionC. Effects of EOs on responding within conditions
D. None of the above
I don't know but it's not B
Which of the following is not an advantage of indirect functional assessment methods?
They rely on the memory of informants
Which of the following is recorded when using direct observation methods to conduct a functional assessment?
Antecedents, behaviors, and consequences
Which of the following is true?
Assessment of the function of a behavior can yield useful information with respect to intervention strategies that are likely to be effective.
Which of the following procedures includes open-ended recording?
